Montecillo Gran Reserva 2012
Montecillo Gran Reserva is a classic Rioja, full of flavour and elegantly complex. This wine comes from plots of bush-trained vines on poor, sandy textured soils in the Rioja Alta area. The vines are an average of more than 35 years old and low yields
Ageing takes place in French and American oak barrels (90%-10%) over 28 months, followed by subsequent bottle conditioning for at least 4 years until it is leaves the winery.
